The Red Wings get a rare look at Alexander Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals tonight as the defending Southeast Division Champions visit Joe Louis Arena.

It will be the first match of many this season where Detroit will be without Johan Franzen, who suffered a torn ACL during Thursday's game against the Chicago Blackhawks. To compensate, coach Mike Babcock has shuffled the forward lines.

Henrik Zetterberg will be moved up to the first line, at least temporarily.

“I wouldn’t count on it staying like that,'' Babcock said following today's morning skate.

Valtteri Filppula and Ville Leino will move up to the second line, joining Dan Cleary. Todd Bertuzzi shifts down to the third line along with Jason Williams and the recently-recalled Justin Abdelkader. Kris Draper continues to center the fourth line with Brad May. Kirk Maltby and Patrick Eaves will rotate in and out on that line, with Eaves getting the nod tonight for his Detroit debut.

Game time is 7:00 with television coverage by Fox Sports Detroit.

I'll be stuck listening to Ken and Mickey. I'm painting a bathroom tonight so I'm gonna crank the volume up and try to run in and catch replays when I can.

As much as it sucks to lose Franzen for awhile, I'm excited to see Dr. Fil and Leino get more time. Let's just hope they do something with it!

I don't want the Caps to win, but I wouldn't mind seeing a crazy Ovechkin goal celebration.

I could swear Ovechkin left his feet before checking Stuart.

No kidding, tonight catmandu asked "What's Williams done?" at the start of the game. This is like the third or fourth time in the last couple seasons she's asked about a player only for him to score an important goal shortly afterward.

From earlier:

That first power play is one of the worst I have seen in a long time. You can tell that we are missing the mule.

I'm gonna have to look up that rule about the net. I didn't know it was a judgement call.

And Ovechkin totally hauled down Datsyuk on that shorthanded rush.
